    Instagram

    I was on Instagram this morning and looking through some of the recommendations for other users when I came across "toyvolt."

    They had a rig as their avatar that I like...



    I DMed them and said that I liked it and wanted to know more info about it.

    They just replied to me... "Its not mine."

    I said "I know... it's mine." I told them I was flattered that they liked it and told them they can continue to use it. I also gave them a link to my build.

    We'll see if they keep on using it or not...

    Well congrats. That must be a pretty good feeling.

    That's funny, but also a "what the heck" moment.

    Instagram is one of those things I get, but I just don't get.

    Update:

    Toyvolt contacted me again and said, "Im sorry, I will change it later."

    I told him that wasn't necessary and that I was flattered and that he could go ahead and keep using it.

    He said, "Thank you, ur rig is awesome!"

    All's well that ends well!

    Way to go Squeegie! Your rig is a celebrity and well deserved. I went over the pic with a fine tooth comb. Even did a fingerprint test and all came out 99.9 % sure it is yours. The 1% does not count, in a court of law......

    I have a BARJ body coming this weekend. I would have never considered it if it was not for War BAJR II. I'm likely going to cut the rear wheel wells in a similar way but keep more of the rear end. I will be using different paint colors and no decals.
